Bahamians have been ordered to leave Haiti because of instability!

Foreign Ministry statement on expulsion order from Haiti for all Bahamians

Prime Minister Davis

The Prime Minister has ordered the immediate involuntary departure of all diplomatic personnel from Haiti, or as the security situation permits.

Until this time, a voluntary departure order had been issued and all embassy staff had opted to stay. According to new instructions, they are to return home as soon as the situation permits.

This is only a temporary measure in light of recent developments requiring an assessment and reassessment of enterprise security and intelligence.

This morning, the Stormtroopers reported being stopped by Haitian police and released their vehicles and weapons. This is part of a protest by the Haitian National Police against their own authorities.

All our diplomats are personally safe.

There are also reports of five Bahamians from Bahamas Airlines who landed at Port-au-Prince airport and were unable to leave the airport area. They are all safe and well.

Over the past three days, the security situation in the country appears unstable.

The pattern of security concerns is one of ups and downs, and these withdrawals may be necessary to regroup.

Our security forces have been alerted to these developments.

As soon as circumstances permit, the team will be sent back to Haiti without further announcement.
